@Bregir I liked the old stern on the ship of the line a bit more tbh, the lower level windows look odd in the hull. I've already mentioned this vessel a fair number of times, but following the idea of a single decked cabin in a SOTL like La Fama seems pretty good:  

I second that. You already have the perfect design for that. Just as said, removing the windows from the first battery deck and instead lowering the astern gun ports (at least one brick I'd say from the guts).

I hereby want to mention, that I really consider to join the BoBS. With the HMS Argonaut as a future vessel. In the BoBS called Sjælland.
Also I want to present a little currently unarmed cutter. I even used the horse head, I mentioned the page before:

The rudder still looks a little bit heavy.
 

Greetings and brick on,
Wellesley!

@Wellesley that is a great little tub! I particularly like the "headlight brick" hatches. A neat little detail that I'm impressed you included. I'll look forward to seeing you on the Brick Seas.

Excellent! With the prefix HMS I imagine you'll join the Corries.:pir-angry::pir_laugh2:

I like the cutter, especially the horse head, hilarious.

And I have also a pic showing how I've built my custom hull.

Interesting, I'm impatient to see how it would look like on your ship.:sweet:

Being a twodecker, if she has 5 mid sections, I would say she is comparable to the Margot and can be a class 7. If she has 4, she would be a class 6.

6 mid sections, to be honest, but without the stern part, and I've added three rows of brick at the stern, so it's comparable to 2 bow/stern pirces and 5 mid sections.

Nice Fluyt :D I want to build one of those too at some point, and class 7 seems spot on for me ;)

Thank you LS for the answer.:thumbup:

@Mesabi

Looking quite good already, I like the shaping and overall structure. I guess it should be longer for this width, but nothing wrong with a chubby boat!

As set in another place, I think it would really benefit from a strong contrast colour. Right now it just feels too white to me.

Some points I would focus on:

1. this concept is very blocky. I would focus on round shapes a LOT more.

2. The white and blue would be okay for a ship, but since we are copying ships from the time period of 1600-1800: your focus should be on brown, tan, black, grey and again brown. White and light blue however can be very nice colors as secondary colors. Now the colors are odd.

3. The masts should not be elevated by white bricks. Looks strange.

4. The bow looks like it is having the right shape, much you need more details.

5. The part you used for the cabin quarter, the sideways part I mean, is too long: making it look blocky.

 

Alright, I hope this helps.

I agree with Fraunces, more brown would look better. I don't know what type of ship you are intending to build, it looks like a brig to me, though it gives a rather chubby appearance now, have you consider to build it a bit longer?
